Af­ter years of ven­tur­ing in­to some­times more, some­times less ob­vi­ous (sub-)genres, the lat­est long­play­er of Jake Robertson's Alien Nose­job marks kind of a re­turn to his Aus­muteants roots in some places, while still car­ry­ing plen­ty of echoes of his more ec­clec­tic ven­tures of late. Oh, and most of all, he's div­ing knee-deep in­to clas­sic-/dad rock ter­ri­to­ry this time but thank­ful­ly do­ing so with style, grace and a sense of hu­mor. Smash­ers like Shuf­fling Like Coins and Coastal Liv­ing 2 are prob­a­bly as close to a tonge-in-cheek AC/​DC knock­off as you're ever gonna get.
